The film tells the bands story ..., 18 Mar 2015 [cached]
The film tells the bands story through archival clips and interviews with a number of non-Residents, including Steve Seid, video curator for Berkeleys Pacific Film Archive. Seid sheds light on the importance of the bands early short films/music videos, which are now part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
I think one part of (The Residents) legacy will be that they found and were able to establish meaning within this completely corrupted (art) form, Seid says.
Resurrecting Sensurround, 15 April 2007 [cached]
Steve Seid
It seemed to Steve Seid, video curator of the Pacific Film Archive (PFA) at the University of California Berkeley, that it might be fun to resurrect some of these stunts. Accordingly, in 2004 Seid planned a retrospective film series highlighting various gimmicks the film industry has dabbled with.
Fortunately for Seid, subwoofer technology had improved hugely in the intervening 30 years since Sensurround's brief existence, in part due to the development efforts of Meyer Sound.
Conveniently for Seid, the Meyer Sound factory is located in West Berkeley, only a few miles from PFA. "I called Meyer Sound not knowing anybody there and expecting I would have to write letters upon letters to get anywhere," says Seid, "but they put me through to (Executive Vice President) Helen Meyer who quickly agreed to help with the project.
In the fall of 2005 Seid again contacted Meyer Sound to see if there was interest in taking a second shot at Sensurround.

Indeed, Steven Seid, a film curator at the Pacific Film Archive, suggests that letting the viewer fill in the blanks is one way of making a movie more participatory. It turns film into a social media where the audience must engage. He cites Hedy Lamarr's 1933 "Ecstasy" as an example of an early erotic gem. Nothing is naked but the emotions, which are quite raw.
"Hedy is shown thrown across a bed, looking dreamily skyward," says Seid.
